    Zlig – Intra-articular cruciate ligament
    replacement technique (CRCL)

     The tear of the anterior cruciate ligament is still one of the most
     common orthopaedic diseases in dogs. The path of the many
     surgical methods developed for this led via intracapsular and
     extracapsular techniques to modern corrective osteotomies
     that alter the geometry of the affected knee joint. With the
     development of new materials in medical technology, it is now
     possible to replace the anterior cruciate ligament in an
     anatomically correct manner, instead of changing the forces
     acting on the joint.

     The Zlig consists of ultra-high-molecular polyethylene with the
     special feature that the woven structure of the implant is
     interrupted intra-articularly be “free fibres”. Free parallel fibres
     reduce fatigue and also encourage the ingrowth of fibroblasts
     and collagen. Each implant is delivered in a sterile packed
     sleeve, making it easier to handle the implant before it is
     inserted into the joint. A selection of sizes with different
     resistances and fibre lengths are available to fit different patient
